I'm looking for BIG Flashlights

Min Requirements are Triple 18650 or dual 27100, or other configurations similar or larger. No single cell lights

I'd love it if the Hound Dog Super could take dual or triple 21700's, Imagine that!

Gotcha covered!

My friend, for $29.99 you can get a 36" LiteZall!

Makes a 6D Maglite look like a pen light!

Features marked inch measurements on light body for your fishing pleasure!

Visit www.LiteZall.com to-day!

(holding your LiteZall or happy to see me? both?)

Now, seriously....

I'm a ranting enthusiast about the all-conquering high output high intensity Luminus SBT90.2 LED.

2 of my favorite SBT90.2 lights (around $150) are the long handle 2x 21700 Jetbeam M64 from batteryjunction.com and the 3x 21700 WildTrail WT90 from AliExpress. (the WT is an M1 Abrams)

There are great holiday pricing deals right now.
15% off at battery junction for the Jetbeam.
for the WT90 ($260 MSRP) limited deals for either $138 or even $105 on AliExpress, which took 10 days to arrive free shipping.

Use discount codes [ COFA5 ] or [ WT90V5 ] at checkout on AliExpress for the WildTrail WT90 (shown in pictures in bare aluminum finish) for the insane discount pricing.

The WT90 was on my wish list for over a year and with the incredible discount became my from me to me Christmas present 🎁 this year and I'm utterly impressed with its stellar performance. Highest possible recommendation.

The Jetbeam has the same emitter in a more manageable size package, with the long tube design I love and much more compact head. Much lighter too.

Here are some pics:

Convoy L7. 2x 26650 and an SBT 90.2. It's a real beast.
Equivalent to the Jetbeam M64 but much cheaper. Supplies of quality 26650s have really dried up, it's a dinosaur cell format. M64 uses 2x 21700.

I have and love the Convoy L8, the L7s 26800 brother which is now really a dinosaur cell format.

The Noctigon K1 is another great SBT90.2 performer, but limited by 1x 21700 battery. Punches above its compact weight class.

Hot off the press there are several manufacturers rolling out models powered by the single 4695 Red Bull can sized liion cells. 46mm dia, 95mm length with 32,000 mAh. One cell equals six 21700 or a dozen 18650. 32 THOUSAND mAh!

While I do agree that 26650 are getting older, I don't think they will be going anywhere anytime soon. They are still a great format. I'm not sure about the jet beam, but what I like about the convoy is that it uses a buck driver. Which is better than any of the other lights that use single or multiple cells in parallel. But it is too bad. By volume, 26650s should be 9000mah

I can vouch for the Jetbeam M64. I just got one about a month ago and am very happy with it. Very bright, excellent throw, the head is small enough that you could slide it in your back pocket (handle down) if you're walking around, and could be a head knocker if needed. Good light for the price.

Is that battery replaceable or is it totally proprietary/OEM?

Now that is just adorable!

Length matters, let no one tell you otherwise...but sometimes, it is also about girth.
Fenix TK75 2018, with 6x battery carriers. Each carrier taking 4x 18650's. Total length is 66 cm (26 inches).
